I have Freesync problems since driver version 17.11.4.


In lower FPS the screen begins to flicker in every game.

Describe your issue:

Heavy Freesync flickering in lower FPS < 50 since driver version 17.11.4, running version 17.11.3 everythink is fine

Freesync Windmill demo on 17.11.3 as it should be: Freesync 17.11.3 - YouTube


                                                                on 17.12.1: Freesync flicker 17.12.1 - YouTube


My guess is that the LFC-Algorithm is broken.


Does anyone have the same problem and/or a solution for this?

I like the new adrenalin driverfeatures but its not worth the flickering.
